After staying in many "boutique" hotels in Thailand that can be generous when classifying themselves as a "5 star" hotel, the Puripunn truly delivers. Even their most basic of rooms are majestic and colonial and are similar in style to the colonial rooms of the Peninsula in Bangkok or the Raffles Hotel in Singapore. The bathrooms in the room are easily 1/3 of the entire room size and are truly magnificient with some great finishings such as a sitting area for the bathtub and brass finishings on the bathtub.
Service in the hotel is also fantastic and whether it be checking in or checking out or providing the occasional surprise voucher, the staff shows initiative and goes out of their way to ensure the guest's stay is a pleasant one.
When booking this hotel one should be aware that it is not in the middle of the old town but rather a short 5 minute walk to the river and the accompanying night bazaar. The hotel provides regularly scheduled shuttle service into the old town during the day and provides shuttle service on demand in the evenings into the old town.
As the hotel is a boutique hotel, breakfast was not a lavish spread. However, the offerings they did offer were of high quality. Low fat meiji yogurt was provided and the omlettes, bacon, sausage and pad thai were all excellent.
Overall, we had an excellent time staying at the Puripunn and this would be our hotel of choice when returning to Chiang Mai.
